School IT Suites
The obvious and most common classroom spaces requiring good technologies are the IT suites. Often these workspaces are designed only for that function; however, with the clever introduction of more versatile furniture, the classrooms could offer wider uses beyond that of just one subject matter and thus maximise the efficiency of total floor area.
By integrating power into the desking, students are able to plug straight into data ports without the need for multiple cables clogging up the workspace. Furthermore, power can also be integrated within soft seating, so if studying within a breakout space at school, students can access the internet and charging points from the comfort of a sofa- this is particularly favoured during the stressful revision periods.
This relaxed and more sophisticated way of working mimics the modern working office and will assist in empowering students to feel more trusted and mature when not in a regimented formation.
